Venezuela trains record number in agchems

The Venezuelan agrochemical industry trained a record of over 15,000 people in safe pesticide use in 2008. The industry association, Afaquima, trained 15,597 people, including over 4,700 farmers, more than 7,000 students, and variously medics, teachers, housewives, and schoolchildren, it says. The number was a 74% advance on 2007, the association adds. Personal protection in the use of pesticides has become “common practice” in several regions. “This is an important step towards the aim of lowering the incidence of poisonings on farms,” The Afaquima says. There were eight reported cases of poisonings from pesticides in Venezuela last year, it adds.
